Just got a 1992 Mx leader frame. Tried a 27.2 seat post and its to tight. Should I go down to 27.00 or 26.8. Anybody know the corret size?

27.2 is correct - the seat tube may need to be reamed a bit.

I have an MX Leader from '96 and it takes a 27.2 Campy post. It is a snug fit, but a 27 would definitely be too small. You might try honing the seattube as was suggested earlier.
